    [B]mrfin, a couple of questions for you...

    I didn't understand the directions either at first. I just drilled my hole and figured it out by myself. I drilled the hole right in the center of my tracing and started to cut towards the outer edge. When you start cutting, you will quickly learn how the nibbler cuts the aluminum. Once I got to the edge, I just cut along my drawn line. You can make pretty tight turns with it. It does however take some time, it is only a nibbler, not a cutter. I did lay down some masking tape, but it tore right through it. I would use the nibbler again in certain instances, but I think I'll try using a Dremel to cut a top hole for my new case. I did like using it because it allowed me to cut a hole without having to remove the internal components.

    That's a good question. I never looked. The inside of my case is bare aluminum anyway, so I wouldn't mind. As far as cutting from the inside out, the nibbler's blade is on the bottom and it pulls up to cut. That means that the blade would be on the outside of the case when you are cutting from the inside, that might make for a cleaner looking cut on the outside.
